Per Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit, President Obama has refused ALL military requests form Israel since taking office.
The administration of President Barack Obama has refused to approve any of Israel’s military requests since it entered office in January 2009. The Pentagon did not announce any weapons contracts to Israel over the last 14 months.
Look, I get that the President wants to pressure Israel to move forward with peace talks, but this surely isn’t the way to go about it.
The three most troubling aspects of the Obama administration, to me, are these:
1. Extraordinarily poor personnel choices
2. A propensity to nationalize every problem
3. A foreign policy that, in its execution, is so amateurish as to be buffoonish
The primary roadblock to Mid-East peace talks is not Israel. It was the foolish statement of the White House placing the precondition of stopping settlement building before talks could take place. That’s a precondition that the Palestinians never claimed until the White House announced it.
